My Guest this Thursday, May 3rd at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk is artist Boris Bally of bally humanufactured, LLC. 

 
Bio: Boris Bally’s award-winning work is a disciplined body of objects which vary from eccentric through formal to humorous; provoking thought and reflecting some of the distortions of our ordered world. His practice is a near transparent amalgam of the skills of an able industrial designer, a gifted craftsperson, a savvy business man, a discriminating sculptor, and a clever cultural critic. 
 
Bally is a working artist - someone who has integrated their studio practice, their means of monetary support, and his family into a seamless (sleepless?) lifestyle that is puncutated by the dissected remains of streetsigns. His current body of work transforms recycled street signs, weapon parts, and a wide variety of found materials into objects for reflection. These pieces celebrate raw American street-aesthetic in the form of objects, often useful, for the home and the body.
 
Bally is the recipient of the 2006 Individual Achievement Award for the Visual Arts presented by the Arts & Business Council of Rhode Island. Bally's work has received two Rhode Island Council on the Arts Fellowships in Design and a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Fellowship in Craft. His work is featured in numerous international exhibitions and publications.
